Re: Rest in Power: Jason Parratt — bird

I'm speechless.  neutral ...... RIP good buddy


When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations:  bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on.  This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead.  I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity.  But I am mentally far away from civilization.  The world is breaking someone else's heart.

Re: Rest in Power: Jason Parratt — bird

I did not know bird,but from reading the comments about him from other members who did know him,he was a pretty good guy.Really sucks to see another museum brother lost this year.

There really should be a memorial page stickied for members who have past on.

Thanks for the words and thoughts, Neil.  There is such a thread...

Once I get complete information, I'll post on it.

Too young. I didn't know him as well, but I do remember seeing his posts and he seemed like a good guy. Losing a bmx brother truly sucks.

Re: Rest in Power: Jason Parratt — bird

What I believe are his first and last posts on the 44T thread.  Jason was all about sharing whatever positive energy and humor he generated...

Re: Rest in Power: Jason Parratt — bird

My last contact with him was last week when he asked me how to post pics on the Museum.  The irony in this is that one of our first conversations took place years ago at the Crown Point show, when he asked me how to post pics on here.  In his typical deadpan, matter-of-fact way, he used to tell me he was "computer challenged"! lol
